I've been attmpting to upload a Custom Color Rendering Profile for Infrared photography.  I have a DNG Camera Raw Profile file from a trusted source and have followed the instructions to add it to camera profiles in a Mac OS system, yet Photoshop and Light room will not accept them.  I get an error message in PS which reads "...PS does not recognize this type of file.   Any thoughts?

Can you upload this profile for further testing? Seems it's not following Adobe standards based on that error but it would be useful to test and examine. 

How and where did the profile get installed, how can PS provide that error if the profile wasn't first installed and selected in ACR or LR?

Hi,

 

Posting it here would help, but many of us may be reticent about downloading an unknown file. 

 

There are all sorts of uses of the same word "profile" for lots of different things in the computer imaging world. It can sometimes refer to a group of settings saved as a file containing them all, I'd prefer to call that a "preset" - then there's the one we use mostly, an ICC profile

 

I wonder if what you have a type of 'profile' particularly for Camera Raw [a settings file] rather than the "normal" ICC profile format?

Were the instructions you mention from the profile maker - the originator? Or are you perhaps following web instructions and trying to install it as an ICC profile? 

 

I hope this helps
